Filipino Language 8 Weeks Course Autumn 2012

Elementary

This course follows on from the Beginners level, which served as an introduction to the Filipino language. The Elementary course will focus on grammatical points in order to build confidence in constructing sentences and expressing yourself in Filipino. This course will also work on listening, reading and writing skills to increase the students’ exposure to the language through various media.
The Elementary level will be suitable for students who attended the Beginners course with Philippine Generations and those who have done some other Filipino/Tagalog course, self-study or similar. This will not be suitable for absolute beginners as basic familiarity of the language is required.

If you are unsure if this will be suitable for you or if you have any questions, please email Dianne Marcos here: dianne.m@philippinegenerations.org 


Dates every Tuesday 7pm-8:30pm [October 2, 9, 16, 30] [November 6, 13, ,20, 27]
